How can I order the taxonomies in the widget?

Just drag them around.

How do I define a custom taxonomy?

Try the Simple Taxonomies plugin.

Is there a template tag I can use instead of widgets?

You can use the_widget(), like so:

the_widget('Taxonomy_Drill_Down_Widget', array( 'title' => '', 'mode' => 'dropdowns', 'taxonomies' => array( 'post_tag', 'color' ) // list of taxonomy names ));

'mode' can be one of 'lists' or 'dropdowns'

How can I customize the display?

The template hierarchy for multitax queries is taxonomy.php -> archive.php -> index.php.

If you need to get specific, you can use the is_multitax() conditional tag, which works similarly to is_tax():

is_multitax() -> true if more than one taxonomy was queried.

is_multitax( array('tax_a', 'tax_b') ) -> true if both tax_a and tax_b were queried.

How can I customize the display even further?

Copy any file from the templates directory into a directory called qmt-templates in your theme and modify it at will.

For example to change the checkbox mode display,

copy

wp-content/plugins/query-multiple-taxonomies/templates/checkboxes.html

to

wp-content/themes/YOUR-THEME/qmt-templates/checkboxes.html

and change it however you want.
